Truth. The N. Y. Tribune, in a late ar
ticle on the future, saye that the American
system, o called, now lies eold in the grave
of its chief author and advocate at Ashland.
It has become entirely obaoleto by the pro
gress of event and the' tendencies of the
age; and the Whips who formerly contend
ed strenuoaaly for its adoption, are compel
led to admit that Hi no longer practicable'
or' expedient. Thns time vindicates the
Democratic policy, and demonstrate the er
rora of ita opponent.- Locofoeo paper. ' (
. The paragraph above is heartless. , There
may bo whig who say the American Sys
tem is no longer practicable or expedient;
but (hey should rank themselves with Loco
focoism preferring the spoil of office' to
principle. Such men we do not want.,. We
are willing to admit that "the progress of
eventa and the tendencies of the age" are
laboring to render, "obsolete'.' the American
System ; but there are such tilings as a check
even to toryisra. England may triumph for
Awhile; European politic may keep back the
adoption of the American System; but there
i yet patriotism enough in the country to
save it from ruin. ' "The tendencies of. the
age," ' just at this time, appear to overlook
the interest of our own country for the pur
pose of 'taking dare of others it is doubt
less a very .benevolent operation, but it is
not wiae in itself nor j".st to ourselves.
Charity is the greatest of all virtues, hot
then charity should begin at. home. Men
should hot starve thejr own families to feed
other, i .. - . , ,i
- When the American system us obsolete,
wo are no- longer an independent nation;
In name we may be free, but in fact we are
mere colonic of .the moneyed men of, Eu
rope buying of them more than we coll to
them, always. In debt and subject to the fluc
tuations of European trade and the caprices
of European Manufacturers. The' advice of
Vtha Father of his Country," to beware ol
foreign, influence, may. yet have some little
weicht anion a men who appear to think
more of a commerce with the crowned heads
of Europe than the prosperity and independ
ence of American Labor. . . -.. ' :
But the American System is not yet ob
solete. There is yet a Whig party who will
fight for principle, even if an individual here
and there may become, discontented because
lie has lost the spoils of office.- r,'
Just Like Him. When Gen. Pierre, re
ceived the news that lid was elected .Presi
dent, he was practicing law in, Manchester,-
New Hampshire, and never deviated
from the business before him, any more than
he. would if not a candidate. lie went on
with his case and didn't seem to.think, that

This seeming to think that the verdict of the
people was not by any moans as important

. The Tare Fiat Fiat or the Fuai.
Messrs Qales&Seaton have a noble arti
cle on the1 result' of the election, which We
should like to commend to the serious atten
tion of every Whig, in the present crisis.
After enumerating the causes of defeat, and
the "consolations" under It, they tlins con
From the brief suggestions which we have
thrown out. our readers will have discover
ed that we do not agree in sentiment with
those Whigs who exclaimed, in anguish of
spirit at the news of the disappointment of
their cheriahed hopes, that in the result of
this election "all is lost but honor.."
Our sentiment Is, on the contrary, that the
Whigs have lust nothing the loss of which
ought to deter them from the continued aup.
port of the principle embodied in that no
ble creed promulgated by the Baltimore Con
vention. - i
As for the Whigs laying down their arms
and abandoning an honorable cause becaune
of ita having met with a check, as some have
proposed, it is not for a moment to be thought
of. They have lost an election, it is true,
which they ought to have gained. But they
have a country left for theni to serve, and to
save from the evils of foreign influence, al
ready employed In corroding the cement
which hold this Government together.
They still are bound by every consideration
of duty to themselves, to- their families, to i
their country, and its institutions, from
which the defeat in an election cannot diet
charge them, to stand by their principle,
betide what may. ' This is a moral as well
a political duty, ' which no good citizen
can cast off at pleasure, and least of all can
any real Whig. ' '
. Public OrmroK m Fbaxcc A Pariaan
correspondent of the New York Tribune,
gives the following as ah instance "6f the

workmen to go and see the entrance of the

noted down. When the public officer went
to M- Didot, the great printer, and told him,
'.'I understand you intend stopping your
presses next Saturday!" 'l beg your par
don, sir, I intend doing no such thing," was
M. Didol's reply. "Yes, yes," retorted the
Policeman, "and you are going to. ask the
Prefect of Police for - a place in the cortege

for them at least the Prefect of Police ex

Columbus, O.,' Nov., 23, 1832. -
Emtob or the Gazette: The machine
ry of legislation is once more fairly in mo
tion. , .The adjourned session of the fiftieth
Genera) Aasembly, and the first under our
present moat progressive democratic and bi
ennial constitution,, convened on the 15th
instant. The House of Representatives oc
cupy the Odeon Hall, and the Senate is dis
puting with the batst spiders and mice for
the possession of the old brick edifice where;
in, of yore, the United States Court was
wont to inhabit. ' ,,...
As yet, but little has been accomplished.
The Senate, during the paat week, exhibited
a commendable degree of activity, and if
their knowledge had been equal to their zeal,
their labors might, by possibility, have been
worth what they have cost. We wish we
could say as much for their capacity fc ability
a we can for their attention and assiduity.
Upfortunately for the State, their ability is
uch aa to render their industry hardly a vir
tue. Very little can be said in respect to
that kind of industry that is assiduous with
out being intelligent, that does wrong by in
stinct, and does right by accident, and that
manifest a distempered vigor in the. work
ing of the public ruin quite as often as it is
exhibited in the promotion of the public wel
fare. But the Senate tins thus far been in
dustrious. The old matter pending at the
dissolution last spring, and laid upon the ta
ble by the. adjournment, has nearly all been
taken up and referred to the appropriate com
mittees, who are now digesting and arrang
ing it for the final action of the Senate.
. A bill has been introduced, and is now in
the hands of the committee on Finance, pro
viding for the establishment of a sinking
fund to pay off the public debt of the Stute.
A bill to fix tho rate of interest and to pre
vent usury, has been introduced by Gen.
Wilson, and was reed the second time yes
tcrduy. The lata of cither of theee, it in
impossible now to, conjecture. Tho far
fumed Militia bill passed yestenluy by a vote
of 24. to, C. It mot with much oppocition
and ridicule last winter, and was so radically
amended, in committee of the whole, that,
on its final passage, it barely secured the
support of its original friends, and iU char
